Construction about 65 percent complete on school scheduled to open in August
With the first phase of construction on STEM Lab in Northglenn now past the halfway mark, school teachers and staff got an up-close look at the construction during a recent tour.
The school is in the midst of a multi-phased, $20 million renovation that will transform the 47-year-old building into a state-of-the-art learning environment for more than 700 students from across the district.
March will be a big month for the ongoing expansion of the Arapahoe Ridge Elementary in Westminster.
